During my project I have many new friends and followers in a city, and I am about to go there. I want to meet them in a group talk. I think the correct word for it is "fan meeting", but I feel quite ashamed for using that word, as it sounds like I'm arrogant. Is there a more neutral way to describe that? I don't think "follower meeting" is natural, and people can see through it that it's just another way to use "fan meeting".

    There must be content you are planning besides patting each other's backs. Focus on that instead of a synonym for fan meeting, which will be ... a fan meeting. Will you present a project update? Dec 29, 2020 at 14:48

    @YosefBaskin yes, in that meeting surely people will ask about the project, for example the motivation I commit to this project, the outcome, my future life, etc. But I imagine this is an informal talk, when I also ask about their life and the like, rather than a presentation with slideshows and chart and data...

It's just called a meetup.

You'll be organizing it, and they know who you are.

If you need an event title, call it, for example: @Ooker Austin Meetup

Per your comment, if you want to suggest that this is a big event, try @Ooker 2021 Austin Meetup

    Perhaps I should have used @Ooker San Francisco Meetup as an example... Jan 13, 2021 at 5:25

Given the context, I think that whatever term you use instead of 'fan' would ultimately imply the same thing. Would you consider using 'supporter' instead of 'fan'? You can say 'Supporters' Group Meeting'.
